Trey Sermon time?

The 49ers returned to the practice field Thursday but were without a few notable players. Running back, Elijah Mitchell wasn’t on hand during the open portion of practice. Mitchell didn’t practice on Wednesday either. This isn’t the first time, and it won’t be the last time I say this: if players don’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday, they usually don’t dress Sunday.

Sunday night’s atmosphere should be electric as the 49ers home opener comes against the Green Bay Packers. These are two teams many felt would be in the running to win the NFC. The Packers slipped up Week 1 against the Saints but their offense got back on track Monday night against the Lions.

Jimmy Garoppolo hasn’t lost a game in his career on Sunday night. He’s 4-0.

Gold Standard: How the 49ers can boost the ground game this week

Photo by Leon Halip/Getty Images

When the 49ers have had success against the Packers, they have moved the ball on the ground. Everyone remembers the NFC Championship game in 2019 when Raheem Mostert demoralized Green Bay to the tune of 220 yards and four touchdowns.

With the running back room depleted going into Sunday night’s game, Levin Black had an interesting idea to jump-start the offense on today’s Gold Standard Podcast.

“If the run game is struggling again this week, do...

Kyle Shanahan, Matt LaFleur’s brother had tense exchange about Aaron Rodgers?

There had been rumblings that the 49ers were his top choice when he demanded a trade, so Mike LaFleur (and his brother) may have felt Shanahan and the Niners were toeing the tampering line.

Hightower: That’s our goal, complementary football, offense, defense, and special teams

“It’s just good complementary football. And we’ve got to keep doing that if we want to try to string together more wins.”

The 49ers' defense prevented the Eagles from scoring touchdowns in back-to-back possessions in the first quarter. Javon Kinlaw blocking the field goal was a pivotal moment for San Francisco.

Special Teams coach Richard Hightower spoke on the efforts of the blocked FG below.

Kyle Shanahan heaps praise onto Brandon Aiyuk’s work in practice

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

While many have noted Brandon Aiyuk’s limited production in the first two games of the season, Kyle Shanahan reiterated why fans shouldn’t be worried.

49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has had an underwhelming start to the season. After an excellent rookie year, Aiyuk came into 2021 with high expectations. The start to his sophomore campaign, though, has gotten off to a slow start. Through two games, he’s hauled in just one reception for six yards....

The San Francisco 49ers have their home opener Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers, where they'll wear the famous '94 red throwbacks.

Jimmy Garoppolo was asked if he and his teammates were excited:

49ers rookie Trey Sermon preparing for more work on special teams

Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports


49ers running back Trey Sermon received his first regular-season carry in Sunday’s 17-11 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. While the former third-round pick earned a first down on an eight-yard carry, he was immediately forced out of the game after an illegal hit put him in the league’s concussion protocol.

Sermon has progressed well this week and has a chance to return to the field on Sunday. A healthy inactive...

The extra advantage the 49ers will have against the Packers on Sunday Night Football

Since Levi’s Stadium opened in 2014, the 49ers haven’t exactly been a juggernaut at home. In the seven seasons played there, San Francisco is 23-20 in the regular season. In the playoffs, however, the fans definitely made their presence felt. It was clear from their comments yesterday; the 49ers expect more of the same this week.

Kyle Shanahan called the electricity in the stadium for the 2019 NFC title game one of his favorite...

The 49ers had 12 former players nominated for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Patrick Willis will be a snub each year he doesn’t make it.

Also, congrats to Mitch Wishnowsky on winning Special Teams Player of the Week. He pinned the Eagles inside of their 10-yard line twice.
